Hue to ask UNESCO to recognise Huong river landscape (December 07, 2004)

Ancient capital city Hue said on December 6 it had planed to ask the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) to recognise the beautiful landscape along the Huong river as a World Heritage site.

This is the second time that the city will apply for recognition of the site. Last July, an application was submitted to UNESCO on the recommendation of the World Heritage Committee at a conference in China, said Phung Thu, director of the Ancient Capital’s Preservation Centre.

The preservation centre is currently preparing a draft application report on recognition of the site which will later be submitted to UNESCO.

Vietnam’s UNESCO-recognised World Heritage sites are the Complex of Hue Monuments (1993); Ha Long Bay (1994); Hoi An Ancient Town (1999); My Son Sanctuary (1999) and Phong Nha–Ke Bang National Park (2003).
